Where I've Been

  • 8/3/2018 to 8/5/2018 I had a great time at Willamette Writers Conference in Portland, Oregon. It was fun teaching my class, "From Retiree to Writer: One Author's Story," and meeting so many old and new friends. There were great keynote speakers, and I bought many of their books. What a thrill to see my own book displayed in the Barnes & Noble room, and to participate in the Book Signing Party Saturday night. Here I am signing my first book for super-teacher Jennifer Ransom. I've loved volunteering at WWC for the last 15 years or so, and I'm already forward to next year's conference!

  • I spent May 24-27, 2018 at the International Association of Behavior Analysts (ABAI)44th Annual Convention in San Diego, CA. Had a wonderful time presenting, "How to Talk to Teachers to Increase Procedural Fidelity in Classrooms" and hearing many excellent speakers. Beautiful weather, but it's always good to be back home!

  • From the 23rd through the 26th of April, 2018, I was with Diane Cords Hagood at Bass Lake Joint Union Elementary School in California, delivering a district-wide training on “Autism: from Awareness to Acceptance.” Bass Lake is a beautiful community near Yosemite National Park. I got to meet just about everyone in the district, including teachers, administrators, parents, 6th – 8th grade students, clerical staff, paraprofessionals working in classrooms, on playgrounds and in the cafeteria, bus drivers, and even local law enforcement. What a wonderful group of people, dedicated to serving students, families, and community. Special thanks to Lydia, Sheila, Carol, Whitney and Stefan, and especially to Diane for hosting and orchestrating everything so perfectly. The four-day event ran like clockwork! It’s always great fun to work with Diane and to spend time in California again.

  • 3/9/2018 - I attended CalABA (California Association of Behavior Analysts) at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA. It was great to hear so many excellent speakers, and such fun to have lunch and catch up with Rebecca Meyer, BCBA, Merced County Office of Education.
